    Net Neutrality

    Post by Zev the Reveler on Wed Jan 29, 2014 3:32 pm

    https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/restore-net-neutrality-directing-fcc-classify-internet-providers-common-carriers/5CWS1M4P

    This link will take you to a page where you can make an account, and sign the petition.

    If you have a US zipcode, you can do it. If you don't, tell some friends who do. It's laughably easy to make an account, it only takes about ten minutes, and most of that is waiting for the confirmation email. When you receive it, you can click a link to take you straight to the page to sign the petition.

    This is very important. Without net neutrality, small businesses could get crowded out by big businesses turning ISPs into a virtual toll road. MMORPG giants could crush out smaller MMORPGs. Big industries could chop websites into itty bits, charge you to access them, or even block competing sites.

    They are guaranteed to abuse this to get more money, and call me crazy, but they have enough of it. If you see this, even if you're not on this forum, even if you'll never RP with us, please, sign this to protect everyone's internet experience. We all need to pitch in.

    Tell five people. Tell them how easy it is, and what the stakes are. Tell them to tell five people what you told them, and give them the link. Tell them to tell those five people, to tell five more people each what they were told, and so on.

    Use Facebook. Use Twitter. Use Tumblr. Use forums like this one. Tell people on real life; scribble the info on a notepad, and carry it with you to jot down on napkins, if you have to.

    We can do this. We really have no other choice.

    Call your member of Congress to voice your concern.

    No, Klak.

    The petition will get it completed.

    If you call your member of Congress, they'll spend a month debating over it, until it's too late and they can sweep it under the rug.

    The petition is almost at 75,000 signatures.

    We can do this.
